My more than "unexpected" idea... (ID #356186)
an addition by: sith More by this author
Before I even ran out of Chadīs living room, I quickly stopped in view of something that just came to my mind. That so called "remedy" I spoke of...it was not exactly at home, as I told Chad moments before. I realized that I had the necessary item with me, and I started to grin. So things would be transpiring a lot faster than I originally thought...
When I saw Chad like this, affected by the cold that has been spreading throughout the town at that time of the year, something told me that I had to help him in order to get better. Chad was one of my best friends, after all, and even though it might have been just a plain cold he had been suffering from, I still thought that as his friend, I should do something about it, and of course I had not some plain remedy in mind when I told Chad about my intentions. No, I was planning on getting rid of the bacteria lurking deep within his body in another, rather ridiculous sounding way...however, in a way that would certainly be exciting beyond compare and that at least sounded like Chad and me could still do something together on that afternoon...only in another way than we both had planned before.
So I immediately turned back to Chad, who was still sitting under his cozy blanket while masterfully playing Kingdom Hearts II in a way that made me realize that he really must have gotten into that game, and that he indeed was an expert on it, which is not really a surprise when I see now that he had reached level 100 at that point of time. Anyway, even though Chad was quite busy beating the crap out of one of the Organization XIII members near the end of the game, he paused the game as he noticed that I was immediately turning around to him and coming back. Admittedly, having seen him like that really made me think that it really was not such a horrible disease he was suffering from...merely a cold he would quickly recover from in two days or so, and after all, playing Kingdom Hearts II is not a bad pastime at all. Nevertheless, an illness is still an illness, and I thought it was my duty as Chadīs older and more experienced friend to help him out here with my gained wisdom of...shrinkages and certain travels that can result from them.
"Huh? Julian, didnīt you want to go back home and get that remedy you spoke of? *cough*" Chad then asked, sounding slightly confused.
"Well, as a matter of fact...I just realized that I have that remedy I mentioned with me, so I do not even have to go home and get it. What a pleasant coincidence, huh?"
"Yeah, you bet. Well, then give me that remedy and letīs see what it can accomplish." Chad then eagerly said, having not the slightest idea about what I was actually intending to do.
"Chad, I guess Iīll have to explain something to you. That "remedy" I spoke of...is not some kind of family remedy or something like that."
"Huh? Julian, what are you talking about?"
"Uhm...itīs a little difficult for me to explain, but...well, letīs say weīll show these bacteria personally that it was unwise of them to enter your body and give you the cold!" I said, trying to sound intentionally weird and as if I was joking, hoping that Chad would get my more than obvious allusion.
"...I guess I canīt follow you..." Chad then said, staring at me with an expression that told me how flabbergasted he was about my words.
"Well...I thought I will take care of these bacteria myself!" I then said, sounding like it was the easiest thing on earth for me to do, pulling my daring and dangerous plan off, as if it was my profession, my passion or my hobby, and somehow, all three of them could even be fitting descriptions.
"Wait a sec...Julian, you donīt mean...that you want to shrink yourself down...and enter my body in order to destroy these bacteria?" Chad then asked with an expression of disbelief in his voice.
"Hm...technically speaking...yup. Thatīs what I am intending to do."
Chad let out a deep sigh as he finally realized what I wanted to do...as seen in countless cartoons or comic books, or as he experienced himself when Jon and me shrunk down because of the casting of that ancient Norse spell back then that has gone terribly wrong and eventually sent us into Chadīs body, so to speak.
Judging from his reaction, he almost had expected me to say this, and that he himself was not really overjoyed about my idea, and judging from Chadīs character, he was mainly worried about my safety, and being the good person he is, he normally would have never allowed me to risk my life for him simply because of a common cold, seeing that he would never allow any of his friends to get into trouble, as he cares about them a lot. But hey, it was my passion and my duty at the same time, and I was quite sure that it would turn out to be an extraordinary trip. All I had to wait for now was Chadīs reaction and his answer to my idea, whether he would even let me enter his body...
